Voice 1 
Welcome to Spotlight. I’m Bruce Gulland.
Voice 2 
And I’m Christy VanArragon. Spotlight uses a special English method of broadcasting. It is easier for people to understand, no matter where in the world they live.
Voice 1 
Imagine you are looking for a job. You worked hard applying for jobs. And now you have a job interview. You celebrate. But you do not yet have a job offer. First, you must perform well in the interview meeting - you must perform better than the other job candidates! What can you do to improve your chances of getting a job offer?
Voice 2 
To get any job you have to perform well at a job interview. At an interview meeting the employer will ask the job candidate many questions. Some people say that a job interview is like selling something. In a job interview, the job candidate is selling himself! He is selling the idea that he can do this job better than anyone else. He wants the employer to believe this too. This makes many people worry. Today’s Spotlight is on job interview skills.
Voice 1 
Many organisations around the world make suggestions about what to do before an interview. They all agree that you must prepare well for your job interview. The Connecticut Department of Labor is a government agency in the United States. It helps people to get jobs. On its website, it advises,
Voice 3 
‘Prepare early. If you are better prepared you will worry less. And your chances of success will be greater.’


Voice 2 
There are some common questions that employers often ask in interviews. You can prepare answers for these questions before your interview. Do some research about the company. Find out about its size, products, and profits. Learn about the industry. You can then show your knowledge and understanding of the company in your answers. When you have prepared your answers, practice them. Ask a friend or family member to ask you questions. Then, you can say your answers again and again. Then you will remember the information well.
Voice 1 
Let’s look at some of the most common questions.
Voice 4 
Tell me about yourself.
Voice 2 
An employer will often start an interview with a question like this. But employers do not want to hear your whole life history. Talk about the parts of your life that prepare you for this particular job. You should talk about what you studied at college or university, your past jobs and your interest in the area of work. Remember to explain why your past experience has led you to want this particular job.
Voice 4 
What are your strengths and weaknesses?
Voice 1 
Give three examples of your strong qualities or skills. Choose qualities that are important for the particular job. Then give some real examples of when you have used them.
Voice 2 
Many people find it difficult to answer the question about their areas of weakness. But you must not say that you have no weaknesses. The National Careers Service in the UK advises,
Voice 5 
‘Do not list many weaknesses if you are asked about them. Only state one! Choose a minor failing that is not necessary to the job. Turn it into a positive, such as how you have worked on the weakness. Or you could present it as a chance for development.’
Voice 4 
Why should we employ you? Why do you want to work here?
Voice 1 
The employer wants to know that you understand what the job is about. Your answer should show how and why you would be perfect for the job. Again, remember that you are selling yourself. Explain what you can do for the company. Your research about the company will help you create a good answer. You will be able to explain how your goals relate to what the company wants.
Voice 4 
Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?
